Tips for making Strawberry Cinnamon Rolls Recipe:

Room Temperature Butter.

To fully enjoy super soft Strawberry Cinnamon Rolls, make sure the butter you are using has been kept at room temperature. This is done to ensure that the butter is soft enough to easily mix with the dough. Most recipes will tell you to use melted butter, not this one. If you want the process to be as quick as possible, use butter at room temperature for dough and filling so that it is soft.

If the butter is in the fridge, take it out a few hours before making the dough for cinnamon rolls so that it softens to room temperature.

Warm your milk but avoid Overheating.

If you are thinking that using super-hot will help mix the yeast solution better, you are wrong. Milk with a temperature above 115 degrees F will kill the yeast and the dough will never rise, whereas milk at a temperature below 115 degrees F will cause the dough to take more time to rise.

Use a precise amount of Flour.

The dough is the central part of Strawberry Cinnamon Rolls and the structure of the dough depends on the amount of flour used. If you don’t use enough flour, your cinnamon rolls will be soggy because the dough will not rise much. On the other hand, excessive use of flour will result in dry cinnamon rolls.

Ingredients
  

For Dough

  • 1 pack Instant Yeast
  • cup Butter
  • ¾ cup Milk
  • ¼ cup Sugar
  • 3 cups All-purpose flour
  • Salt As required

For Filling

  • Cinnamon Spice As required
  • 1 cup Strawberry Jam
  • 2 cups Sliced Strawberries

For Coating

  • Cinnamon Spice
  • Powdered Sugar
  • Milk

How to Make?
 

  • The first step preparing the dough by activating dry yeast. For this purpose, you need to warm milk on medium heat. Keep the stove on while you add margarine to the milk.
  • If you wish to use natural ingredients, you can substitute margarine with butter. In case you are lactose intolerant you can use Almond Milk or Coconut Milk. We recommend using Crisco Shortening as a dairy-free butter substitute.
  • In a separate large bowl, mix the packet of yeast with sugar and salt. Wait for about 10 minutes so that yeast can bloom and the yeast solution starts becoming foamy.
  • In the yeast solution, gradually add flour. Mix thoroughly. Add 1 lightly beaten egg and water, and stir. Pour the warm mixture of butter and milk and keep stirring until a sticky dough forms. The stickiness of the dough will depend on the amount of flour used.
  • If you want to make the second step yeast-free you can simply use baking soda, baking powder, and apple cider vinegar. In a small bowl mix white granulated sugar, baking soda and baking powder along with a pinch of salt. Add 1 teaspoon of vinegar to the warm milk and butter mixture. Pour this mixture into the baking soda mixture. Thereafter, gradually add all-purpose flour and keep stirring until a sticky dough forms.
  • Once the dough has been formed, flip it out on a lightly floured surface to prevent it from sticking. Knead the dough until the it becomes completely smooth.
  • Place the kneaded dough inside a bowl and cover it with aluminum foil or with a lightly wet towel. Leave the bowl to rest in a warm place for 10 minutes so that the dough can rise. This will be the first rising. 
  • Meanwhile, prepare the cinnamon and strawberry filling. In a small bowl mix sugar and cinnamon spice. Also Chop strawberry slices.
  • Flip out the dough on the floured surface again. This time, roll it into a 9 x 16-inch rectangular shape. If your shape size is not precise, do not worry it won’t matter much.
  • Sprinkle the cinnamon and sugar mixture on the dough. Make sure it is evenly spread all over. Now spread the chopped strawberries. You can also use strawberry jam from the retail store if you want to, but don’t use both as the sugar will become excessive and thus unhealthy.
  • Take the longest side of the dough and start rolling it back up. Once done, cut it into 12 small 1-inch-thick rolls. Place the rolls into a greased Cinnamon Roll Pan.
  • Again cover the dish with a moist towel or aluminum foil and let it rest for 30 minutes in a warm place so that the dough may rise for the second time. In the meanwhile, preheat the oven to 375-degree Fahrenheit.
  • You can store the unbaked cinnamon rolls in the fridge for about 2 days. To do this, make sure the pan is tightly covered with plastic wrap. If you do not intend on storing them, bake the cinnamon rolls for 30 minutes. Turn off the oven when the rolls turn dark brown.
  • Let the Cinnamon Rolls cool and prepare the icing in the meanwhile. In the strawberry puree add 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract. Add 1 pinch of salt and use an electric mixer to stir until the glaze becomes smooth. Cover the top of the Cinnamon rolls with this Strawberry Glaze.
  • You can either store these delicious Strawberry Cinnamon Rolls in the fridge where they can last up to 3 days or you can enjoy them right then and there.
